    Is it too late to flock Carnivus?

    I keep looking at the new pictures of Carnivus and then at Beast Man and cannot help but wonder if their colouring is too similar. The pics make Carnivus look quite majestic but I think he would look better with a light flocking (as per Panthor, not Moss Man's thick flocking).

    Mattel were able to make late production change on the flocking for Moss Man. Is there enough time to apply the flocking fix to Carnivus if the fans demand it?

    I wouln't give that much on the pictures, because they rarely do the "in hand" toy justice. Remember She-Ra's pics from Matty and the ones Patrick made in his thread. Two worlds collide, if you ask me. Hell, even Optikk looked better.

    I won't judge over paintjobs anymore until the final product arrived at my home.

    Of course I could be wrong, but Carnivus looks much brighter to me than Beastman.

    No flocking for me! I like him the way he is.

    I admit he is a tad on the red side, but that could just be the photos. I think it would be better to ask for him to be more brown than to flock him.

    Even so, so what if he has the same color as Beastman? We don't require ever human in the line to have a different color skin than He-man.

    I hope so.

    Sorry, each to their own, but I don't see a need for flocking on Carnivus

    Yeah. That is the other option (and a good one) ... if you don't like flocking.

    i think both would be cool, it would be interesting to get more flockked characters, especially Carnivus, but i like him as he is also!

    I hate being such a slow reader. For just a split second there I thought you were saying "Noooooooo" meaning it's not too late.

    No flocking at all..on this figure. He's fine that way, only the cartoonish/disney-like head sculpt makes him a little strange.

    Nothing represents more the unexplainable vacuousness of the human race, than the unfounded and arrogant blind faith in the ruthless and narcissistic transcendence of itself.

    I wouldn't mind one... but I know that will imply two variants... if they made it for Mossy's ears and it caused a riot, imagine flocking for the whole figure...

    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I could live without flocking for him, like I did with Battle Cat and Beastman.
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    No more flocking for figures for me. But I wouldn't try to deny others what they want. So if a large number of people wanted a flocked Carnivus, I say do it on the second run of him.

    It's never too late to flock a carnivus.

    ...wait, what are we talking about?

    This fan is not demanding flocking for Carnivus.

    Thankfully it doesn't look like there's much of a want there.

    No thanks on flocking.

    He looks busy and interesting enough already!

    If his coloring is too similar to Beast Man in person, I'll just repaint him if it bothers me too much.
